Our passion is for the rich history and culture of the South and the wonderful flavors that are unique to our corner of the United States. Our goal has always been to tell great stories about the people, businesses, food, and flavors of this region and to use whatever tools we have to make that possible. We’ve experimented a lot with different formats, writing styles, video, audio and are continuing to try to find new ways to tell the story of people who make our Southern culture so unique. We are very attached to our family recipes and talking to folks about the Southern flavors and cooking techniques that make up Southern cuisine, so we have decided to stick to what we do well and tell Southern stories about food.
If you haven’t seen our first two videos ( Local 3, Phickles Pickles) and our first podcast ( Southern Cheese) please take a moment and check these out. We plan to bring you more of these amazing stories on a monthly basis. You’re going to notice that our writing is going to slow down a little bit to free up some time to work on our “Stories”. We’ll still bring you recipes from time to time, but we’re going to try harder to tell you about the people and the places of the South that you all grew up with and are most passionate about. The folks that remind you of your grandparents home cooking, or the restaurants whose flavors will live with you for a lifetime.
As part of this process we need your help in two ways: 1) we need your tips telling us about your local country stores, restaurants, chefs, shops, suppliers, etc anybody that you think might be a good fit for our stories; 2) tell your friends about what we are doing to tell these great Southern stories and help us grow these businesses so they can succeed and continue to provide their wonderful Southern goodness for more to enjoy. In the end it’s not about advertising, or numbers of readers on our website, or video views, but that we are building relationships with our farmers, chefs, Southern suppliers and local business owners and passing that on to you to do the same. I hope you guys will help us make these Southerner’s Stories a success!Stay Hungry Y’all! -The Hungry Southerner
